NASA Awards SBIR Phase I Contract to Develop Precision Rad-Hard LDOs

NASA has funded a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project that will enable further development of  a digitally controlled linear low-dropout regulator (D-LDO) for the extreme temperature ranges demanded for space and harsh environment applications. The LDO regulator is a key component in most power management systems especially point-of-load supplies where it is…
